From Pot Shop To School Bus

by MFI News

While most of us were getting ready for Thanksgiving this past November, the first two recreational marijuana dispensaries (AKA “pot shops”) quietly opened in Massachusetts.  Less than a month later, on December 13th, two Mountview Middle School students were taken to the hospital after eating gummies infused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient found in […]

Thank You!

by MFI News

Like many of you, I spent some time over the weekend finalizing my year-end giving for 2018. I know how important the month of December is for organizations like MFI that are dependent on the generous gifts of donors like you. Many thanks to all of you who have supported the work and mission of […]

A Tale of Two Teachers

by MFI News

I’ve been fielding phone calls and emails over the past year from teachers and parents who are struggling to navigate the new speech codes being implemented at schools around the Commonwealth.  Almost as soon as the first gender identity laws were passed in MA, our state board of education gained national attention for an 11-page […]

Daddy’s Boy Forced To Be Mommy’s Girl

by MFI News

This week, at a conference in D.C., I had dinner with Walt Heyer. You may recognize his name, as he was one of the first brave souls to speak out about “detransitioning.”  For almost eight years, Walt, born a boy, lived as a transgender “woman” – complete with surgeries and hormones.  However, he eventually realized that […]

After celebrating a time of thanks last week, today Americans all over the country are participating in #GivingTuesday. This online celebration is an opportunity for members of the community to give back to local non-profits in charitable end-of-the-year giving. MFI is honored to defend our shared family values in our Commonwealth, but we need your help […]

Election 2018: Tough losses across the Commonwealth

by MFI News

Last night was a disappointing one for family values in the Commonwealth.  Although the much touted “blue wave” largely failed to materialize across much of the U.S., it hit Massachusetts like a Nor’easter.  Many strong pro-family candidates for state office lost their races, including incumbent Jim Lyons of Andover.  We will certainly have our work […]

Vote values in MA tomorrow!

by MFI News

Tomorrow is election day!  Our friends at the Renew MA Coalition have assembled non-partisan voter guides for many of the races that will be on tomorrow’s ballot.  Find your voter guide (or guides), and email it to your neighbors.  If your local race isn’t listed, there may not be a challenger or there may be […]

Less than a week until Election Day!

by MFI News

We have less than a week until election day!  This Tuesday, November 6th, we will finally have the opportunity to vote No on Question 3 and Repeal the Bathroom Law!  There’s breaking news that this law is putting children (specifically a 10 year old girl in a Woburn Target bathroom) at risk. If you haven’t yet seen last […]

Last chance for No on 3 push cards!

Our final shipment of No On 3 push cards just arrived today! It is critical that we get them distributed as soon as possible, particularly over the weekend. Please contact Rob Aufiero at robert@renewmacoalition.org or Michael King at michael@mafamily.org to arrange a pick up. The fight for privacy and safety in Massachusetts is really ramping […]

Tune In: Andrew on the Air

by MFI News

As we get closer to the November 6th election, we’re fielding more and more media requests about MA Ballot Question #3, the Bathroom and Locker Room Law.  I have found myself having to explain, repeatedly, to local reporters why some women, for example, might be uncomfortable with a man undressing next to them.  #MeToo doesn’t […]
